Can't go wrong with this recipe. I make it every year. Just stopped back to print it out so I can get the ingredients for Thanksgiving.

This is our favorite holiday recipe but I just made it again (in June) because I had a craving for it. As always, we loved it!

Tried it for the first time on Christmas Eve. It was a hit. Everyone had seconds and some even thirds! Very similar to Ruth Chris sweet potato casserole. I made a little extra crust and baked in a 13X9 pan. Will make over and over. Shared recipe with family and friends.

Wow!! This is the first place winner for sweet potatoes! I have fixed this twice and there were no left overs. The friends and family could not get enough. Some of the picky eaters loved this dish. I don't comment often but I want everyone to give this one a try.I hope you try this just once and you will be hooked. A+++++++

If you watch the video of the chef at Rut's Chris demo this dish here:
you'll note that in the video the chef adds 1 stick of melted butter to the crust and 1/3 stick of butter to the sweet potatoes. The printed recipe, propagated on the web has these quantities reversed.

I had dinner at Ruth's Chris in downtown San Francisco and had this side dish for the first time. I'm a regular at my local Ruth's Chris here in DC where this dish is not offered. I am also the family guru of Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes. When I tried this dish in San Francisco I walked away a believer that this was the best sweet potatoe dish I've ever tasted. Ether it's really good of my family recipe is just not as good as I thought it was. Regardless, I'll be making both dishes this year for Thanksgiving. I guess we'll find out how this recipe holds up.

I made this one evening and it was awesome. The only things I added to the other ingredients were some cinnamon and a dash or two of nutmeg.

I was a hit at Thanksgiving and my Sweet Potato Casserole was Everyones Favorite dish!
I'm a cook in training and I found this dish to be EASY and very Rewarding! But it does take a little time because you have to boil the sweet potatoes and mash them first.
It's so good it could pass as a pie. I will definitely be making this for years to come.
